We love reading and talking about books. We have storytime at the end of everyday and each fortnight we read a new Big Book. We chat about the author and illustrator, we read the blurb, pick out words we know, look for clues about the story in the pictures. We try to remember the sequence of the books and retell the story in our own words. So far we have read books like Walking Through The Jungle, Dear Zoo, 5 Minutes Peace, Room on the Broom, Owl Babies and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. We draw pictures, make art, act out different parts and even make maps about the books. Sometimes, we even get to watch a video or movie about the book!
There was lots of spooky goings on in Junior Infants in the lead up to Halloween. We had a Fancy Dress Shop, a haunted house, our sand box was full of creepy crawlies and we made lots of Halloween arts and crafts!
GOAL Jersey Day
On Friday 12th October we celebrated Jersey Day by wearing in our favourite team jerseys and colours! We donated €2 each and our class raised €36! We designed our own football jerseys aswell and went to assembly where we saw the whole school, even the teachers, in their team jerseys!
Welcome to Junior Infants!
We have had a great few weeks in Junior Infants so far. Everyone is settling in well and making lots of new friends. Have a look at some of the things we have been doing over the first few days.
